City of Wanneroo sends plans for active reserves out for comment

PLANS for active reserves in the City of Wanneroo are out for public comment until August 16.

The draft active reserve master plan covers all City-run sports facilities and will guide development and upgrades needed over the next 20 years.

It was developed in consultation with reserve users and resident clubs.

“This document will guide council on the future uses of City facilities, their development and the estimated costs,” the City’s website said.

A report on the June council meeting agenda said the planning process identified 196 individual projects costing a total of $62.2 million.

Councillors unanimously agreed to advertise the draft plan for public comment at their June 28 meeting.

After councillor Nat Sangalli said junior sports clubs would be on school holidays during the first two weeks of the proposed consultation dates, the council agreed to extend the deadline by a fortnight.

At the same meeting, the council agreed to a motion by Mayor Tracey Roberts endorsing staff to include the capacity to accommodate state league level matches within future planning for district and regional facilities.

Mrs Roberts said that could include AFL, soccer, rugby, softball, baseball, netball, basketball, tennis, athletics and cycling, as well as other sports.
